My computer seems to be infected with an AutoConfigUrl hijacker, and after running MalwareBytes,
the Registry Value - Hijack.AutoConfigURL.PrxySvrRST was found and quarantined. My PC was fine until a restart, where the issue of the proxy slowing down my browser and redirecting my search traffic resumed. Running further scans show no results of threats.
Following some similar cases, I have also located a registry key in HKLM_Software_Microsoft_Windows_CurrentVersion_InternetSettings.
An AUtoConfigURL with data leading to http://xn--koa.net/proxy.pac.
Trying to change any proxy settings do not take effect, and the proxy configuration is always applied.
Please advise me. Thank you.
